Android 5.0 Lollipop For Samsung, HTC, Sony, Motorola, LG; List Of Supported Devices
“Will my device be getting the Android 5.0 Lollipop update?”, is the question on every excited Android user’s mind. While it’s safe to say that devices other than the Nexus 4, 5, 7, and 10 will be receiving the Android 5.0 Lollipop update, it will be naive to expect more than a few handful devices to receive Android’s latest and greatest.
Lollipop has been cited as Android’s first real update since Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich was released a few years back. With physics based animations and the much fabled Material Design, coupled with plenty of under-the-hood changes, this is exactly the kind of release Android fans had been waiting for. We have listed down some of the Android devices that are likely to get the Lollipop treatment, below.
As announced, the following devices should be receiving an update within the next month:
Nexus 7 (1st and 2nd-gen)
Google Play edition devices
Moto X (1st Gen. & 2nd Gen.)
Moto G (1st Gen. & 2nd Gen.)
Moto G with 4G LTE
The timeframe for release hasn’t been specified by Motorola.
Xperia Tablet Z
Xperia Z Ultra
Xperia Z1 Compact
Xperia Z2 Tablet
Xperia Z3 Compact
Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact
The roll-out should start early 2015, beginning with the Z3 and Z2 series of devices.
Seems like only the HTC One series will be getting the Android Lollipop upgrade, for now at least. The update should be rolled out within 90 days of the final software.
HTC One M7
HTC One M8
HTC One Mini
HTC One Mini 2
There is no official word from Samsung on this matter yet, but the Galaxy S5 and Note 4 should be the first in the line to receive the update, followed by the S4 and the latest Galaxy Tabs.
Again, there’s no official word from LG yet, but given the flagship that the LG G3 is, we can safely expect an update, and one for the G2 as well.
We will bring our readers more updates regarding the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop for devices, so stay tuned.
We just wish the rollout starts on time, and that too without any delay!
